O'Reilly accuser up to arse in debt!!!

http://www.drudgereport.com/foxff.htm

XXXXX DRUDGE REPORT XXXXX THU OCT 21, 2004 17:23:09 ET XXXXX

O'REILLY ACCUSER DEEP IN DEBT

**Exclusive**

The DRUDGE REPORT has obtained O'Reilly accuser Andrea Mackris' financial records which show a combined debt of nearly $100,000!

FOXNEWS producer Andrea Mackris, who filed a multimillion dollar sexual harassment suit against top talker O'Reilly earlier this month, has I.O.U's scatted throughout the financial world, records show.

Mackris was making $93K a year when she returned to FOXNEWS in 2004 [she earned $69,088 in 2003], but records dated October 18 show she holds $37,578 in credit card debt, and $61,913 in student loans.

"It appears Ms. Mackris was living way beyond her means," a source close to the situation told DRUDGE late Thursday.

A spokeswoman for Mackris' attorneys, Morelli & Associates, said the firm was unaware of their client's heavy debt load and laughed off any suggestion her financial burden was a motivation for a cash demand from FOX.

Mackris, 33, and her attorney have been ordered to appear for a hearing in New York State Supreme Court next week to divulge whether sex phone tapes exist and "show cause" why they should not be opened to examination by lawyers for O'Reilly and FOXNEWS.

What a load of crap. $100,000 of debt (most of it being student loans) for a person making nearly $100,000 per year is not a lot of debt, and certainly is not living beyond her means. I think O'Reilly must have leaked this to Drudge. I can't imagine anyone thinking this is significant. I think she is probably after money, but I think this is not the big motivator.

I disagree with your assertions since she is 33 years old. If she were 23 or 24, I may be able to see your point.

I guess O'Reilly really does like a dildo in his ass.

It doesn't matter how old you are. Making $100,000 per year and handling $100,000 in debt is no big deal. It may be that she isn't very good with her money, but she isn't that bad off. In other words, I don't want her running my finances, but her debt load isn't out of control or anything.

She's been out of college probably 10 years, has been making pretty good money, and still has 60,000 in student loans to pay off? Sounds like a problem to me.

They also don't mention if she just recently aquired those debts, or how often she pays them off. Just because she has the numbers sitting there on her credit record, doesn't mean squat.

Hell, it could be for her legal costs. Student loans don't mean squat. Who doesn't have those mother****in things. I know people who have $50,000 in student loans, $40,000 in credit card debt, and who make $30,000 a year.

If that $100K debt were a mortgage on a house, I'd agree. But it is credit card debt and 10 year old unpaid student loans. Maybe there's a reasonable explanation, but it certainly throws a caution flag and suggests rhe need for more data.

OldDude - I wouldn't say that she is a good manager of money, but the amount of income she has easily handles the expense of the debt. That is the point. Is she way in debt? Sure. But is is unmanageable to the point that she would go after O'Reilly? I doubt it. It just isn't that much debt considering her income.

Interesting how this was already in negotiations and supposedly she was offered $2 million. The suit's obviously for money, not for keeping her job or not being promoted.

I disagree. $100,000 in debt aside from housing, car, and other living expenses is indeed a lot of debt... and most likely unmanageable. Considering how high her credit card debts are, it certainly appears that she is living beyond her means.

Did Groucho change his username?

It's very easy to run up $100,000 debt. Ever hear of a thing called a house?

$37k in credit card debt is a lot, even for someone making $100k. If it wasn't due to some emergency (such as medical costs, etc.), it would indicate to me that she is living beyond her means. Assuming she's in NYC, $100k is not a huge income.

So our choices are either liberal propaganda or conservative propaganda. I'll take neither thank you.

We don't have to consider getting lied to by either side acceptable.

Lots of people consolidate their student loans to a 30 year repayment schedule. It's not that unusual to still have tens of thousands of dollars of student loan debt that long out of school.

"Tens of tens of thousands" overall. After 10+ years. The trend is definitely not positive unless there's a sudden drastic increase in income.

Are you kidding me? Making $100K in NYC is not much. Having $37K in credit card debt + a $62K student loan @ the age of 33 and single female is not a very good sign. She's definitely spending beyond her means and hunger for more money.

Also, she may have been sexually harrassed by Bill O'Reilly, which is wrong regardless of the amount of her Mastercard bill.

I agree. But if she tried to blackmail him, and if she left after the incident and then came back to work for him afterwards....to hell with that....it wasn't harrassment in my book.

Who doesn't have a hunger for more money? Don't you? Aren't we in a capitalistic society? Is someone who is trying to make more money in life more likely to allege false sexual harrassment claims? I don't think you want to go down that road in making illogical conclusions.

The issue is entirely ridiculous. She's making alright money for NYC. She's got an average amount of debt on her hands. She's doing what conservatives would like -- negotiating before taking it to trial (where she's likely to get less money if negotiations are accepted) where it won't be up to a jury's discretion.

Drudge is being especially stupid.

If her suit was against anybody else, I would say it was probably unfounded gold-digging. But since it's against a conservative, I'm going to side with the accuser.
